I have had a patient tell me after a severe car accident which required ambulance transport, the ER doctor told her she would have chronic neck pain due to the whiplash and “That is simply the way it is.”
I saw her years later after the headaches associated with the neck pain became unbearable and her condition resolved in short order.
Whiplash is a condition where sudden stopping causes stretching of muscles and connective tissues and subtle misalignment of the bones of the neck. The first few bones at the top of the neck are especially vulnerable to this misalignment due to their unique anatomy. The misalignment of this unique anatomy can make it hard for your body to heal itself and cause long standing issues, such as:

Frequently these conditions persist despite physical therapy and Chiropractic care. Why is this?
Quite simply, it comes back to the unique anatomy of the first few bones in the neck. Certain misalignments cannot be fully assessed without specialized analysis of special x-ray views. There are two reasons for this: 1. All the relevant of structures of the upper neck cannot be directly touched due to all the muscles in the way; 2. Frequently the information of what can be touched can be misleading because it is incomplete with no reference point.
